I was watching the grandsons here yesterday because their parents were taking advantage of this beautiful spring like weather and finishing up painting the woodwork on their home.
We were having a blast outside and I got the bright idea to take them down to Ni-maw's fishing hole. We actually drove on around to the boat ramp because it was less of an incline. I really didn't want to fish one of them out of the water---haha!!
So we get out and walk down to the water and I tell them they can pick up "little" rocks and throw them into the water. Well their interpretation of "little" and mine are NOT the same. ;-)
Before I could get them separated so they would not accidentally hit each other with a rock, i just happen to look Calvin's way and I saw it coming about a millisecond before it hit. I heard my whole head rattle......wow have never experienced that sound or feeling before in my life, nor do i ever want to again. This is the aftermath:
Well we got over all that and they proceeded to toss rocks into the water while I made sure no one caught one with their face.
After throwing rocks we went exploring.....we found spent shotgun shells, some really fine river sand that they loved playing in and this big piece of driftwood that they loved playing on:
Everyone came in to eat and those boys had worked up an awesome appetite. After cleaning the kitchen i went in to join P-pa and them while they were watching tv til their parents arrived. I don't know who was more "pooped" -- the parents after spending the day finishing up the painting or ni-maw spending the day keeping track of 2 energetic boys or the two boys themselves after spending the day running, playing, exploring and doing whatever else they could think of...you get the picture. Let's just say it was a wonderful day for ALL........ and a beautiful day in Oklahoma in the middle of winter to boot!!
After kisses and hugs they left and Ni-maw took her shower, spent some much needed quiet time in my chair and then went to bed...I sure didn't have any trouble falling asleep after such a wonderful day.
